First class: Keiran Mosson, Lucas Altinay and Ewan McMullan start the Maryport Christmas card delivery service

Maryport Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will collect Christmas cards from 11 post boxes around the town today.

They will sort the 30p mail tonight and deliver it tomorrow. It is expected that about 1,000 cards will be delivered.

It is the 20th year of the local delivery scheme.

Group leader Jeff Holliday said the money raised through the Christmas cards would be used for maintenance and renovation of the Scout Hall on George Street.

Residents have until lunchtime to get their cards into special post boxes at Cueto’s Newsagents, Peter Walsh’s Butcher, John Nicholson’s Butchers, Maryport News, Signpost Drop In, Ellen’s Shop (Netherton), the Co-op, Spar, Elbra Mini Market, Mitchell's, and Hillside Shop
